comparison Greece UK prices buying yacths

Hi George,
Should you decide to purchase a boat that has been outside of the eu for more than three years (say a bargain in Turkey) then you will be liable to pay VAT again as it looses its VAT paid status. Boats moving between eu countries that have have had vat paid are not a problem but the customs officials seem to be making up rules to suit themselves in some make sure proof of VAT paid is shown on an old receipt so as to be sure you are safe. Also boats of a certain age are exempt, sorry cannot remember the year. For further advice have a look at the right hand side of web sight
Hope this helps.
